|Landscape and Drift - Bing Satellites|
Prolific ambient musician Bing Satellites returns with an album of slow, drifting ambient music. In his own words - Record everything! That is the rule I try to live by. The music on this album was recorded in one week in March 2012, a week when I was rather unwell and thought I had done very little other than take my cold medicine and watch TV in bed. I played a few soothing tunes on the piano (well, my facsimile of a piano) from time to time, but it came as quite a surprise to find that all of...

|Bing Satellites - Twilight Sessions volume 2 [BFW051] - BFW recordings|
The second in the Twilight Sessions series. This is very ambient: long, drawn out pieces that evolve slowly, creating quite an emotive and evocative sound, but with a dub edge. Each piece starts as a blank canvas with no preconceived notion of where the music will go. Notes and noises are played from synths, guitar, voice and samples and fed into one or two loops which repeat and layer and decay. These loops can be quite long, so as a performer I can add notes as I see fit, but only have a cert...

|Twilight Sessions volume 6 [BFW126] - Bing Satellites|
The sixth album in the Twilight Sessions series. Like the first five volumes, this is an album of completely improvised, live ambient music. Each piece starts as a blank canvas. The music is built around a long, slowly decaying loop. Notes are added from synths, guitar, voice and clarinet and over time, they built into grand, atmospheric soundscapes. Sometimes, however, I forget to press record when something wonderful is created...

A while back, we invited BFW artists and our friends to submit songs for a BFW Christmas Album.
